 John, Keith, Ken, Kraig
I met John, Keith, and Ken at the zoo to ride to the museum to see a holocaust railroad car. It wasn't a holocaust railroad car, but was a movie prop built to resemble a holocaust railroad car. Then we road to the Orange Line and I left the group. Ken didn't want to ride Old Buncombe Road and Keith didn't think he could ride far and John went with Ken. I road out Old Buncombe Road to the Lake view Spur. Then I rode up the trail to Furman where I did my longer loop. Then I road to the north end, but I had a guy draft on me to the north end. I rode back to the TRee House. I said Hello to Gene and Kristen and I had a blackberry bacon grilled cheese sandwich with a pineapple fruit cup. I also bought a berry walnut scone for Cissi.

I left the TRee House and met Ken and John coming north. That kind of surprised me. I passed an older couple coming out of Travelers Rest. I was riding a little faster than they were, but about 3 miles later she passed me and said "I didn't think I'd every catch you." I told her that if she wanted to catch me just wait until I was riding uphill. I drafted on her for about a mile. I was loafing as she was doing all the work, then I passed her and told her that once I was out of the draft that she'd likely pass me back. But she and her husband fell back pretty far. My legs were pretty tired from the ride.
